The B Keeps Us Honest-Product Review

Today I would like to welcome Jessica from The B Keeps Us Honest. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself. 

My name is Jessica, I’m a SAHM to an awesome 18 mo boy, Jude. My husband keeps the internet running for a living. We live on 1 income and are always looking for ways to stretch our dollar.

Please tell me about your blog. 

The B Keeps Us Honest is a product review/giveaway blog that I started in November 09. It has a little bit of something for everyone.

How long have you been blogging? 

I started blogging in ’04 on Xanga but didn’t get serious until I got engaged and began documenting my wedding planning in ’07. After the wedding I began to document the beginning of our family and the birth of my son.

How did you get started? 

I started blogging to keep in touch with all of my family and college friends that are scattered around globe. Then after I started my family I began sharing ways that I save money and great products I found.

What kinds of products do you feature on your blog? 

Something for everyone but I particularly enjoy reviewing products for my husband and son, especially if they are organic!

What was your favourite giveaway? 

It’s hard to pick one but I think any of the products I get to review for my son and giveaway are the best.

Who does your blog appeal to? 

Primarily women, especially mothers but I try to keep it diverse for my single and male readers.

What direction do you see your blog going in the future? 

The thing I love most about my blog is promoting new products. I’d love to become a resource that companies big and small use to help spread the word about their products.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog? 

Keeping everything organized. I receive so many comments, emails and products to review keeping everything organized is really key to having a great blog.

What do you love about blogging? 

I love the challenge of writing creative reviews. Anyone can copy and paste text about a product and post some images but I really want to engage readers and connect them to the product.

Do you have a blogging pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is when sites are poorly designed with images that aren’t properly sized or are overly cluttered.

Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway? newbie review bloggers? 

I’d like let everyone know that writing reviews takes a good amount of time and organization. But it’s also alot of fun.

Tell me some of your favourite blogs that you read.

How can people find you?
